My name is José Subero, and I’m a Global Workplace Strategy consultant for ING Bank.
I was born in the Dominican Republic, where I studied architecture and worked around the Caribbean area, moving to Europe in 2006 to pursue an MA at the Design Academy Eindhoven in NL.
I’m a professional with broad design experience in a diverse international arena. My work is recognized by prominent institutions such as the Prince Claus Foundation in the Netherlands for an urban, socio-ecological project in São Paulo BR; the Centre for Textile Innovation (CETI) and Lille Design in France with the highest prize in textile innovation for public furniture, and the A.T. Kerney Scholarship at The Falling Walls Lab in Germany.
Seeking an experience with extensive reach, I joined Starbucks Design and Concepts EMEA in 2013. I delivered more than 450 projects across 16 countries, obtaining honors for design excellence, including 3x Store of the Year Award. Since late 2019 I work at ING Bank as a global consultant, where I provide strategic advice to local teams in all things design. I currently live in Amsterdam with my partner and our two small daughters, binge-reading whenever I get a chance.
